1. LSU Tigers — Tiger Stadium

Look, there’s nowhere better in the world to be on a Saturday in the fall than Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge.

Especially if it’s a night game.

I don’t think there’s a tougher place to win a game than Death Valley on a Saturday night.

There just isn’t a better atmosphere in all of sports than at LSU.

It’s why so many opponents have left Tiger Stadium defeated physically and emotionally. The fans are relentless. They’re loud. And they don’t let up.

By the way, the tailgating is absolutely elite in Baton Rouge. And it’s unique. Only at an LSU game can you get a mix of crawfish étouffée, barbecued shrimp and gumbo, along with some pulled pork (and plenty of beer).

If you have a chance to go to an LSU game in Baton Rouge, you must. It’s a bucket list item.

And please, let the band play neck.

Ain’t nothin better.
